I read a really old Michael Crichton book called Terminal Man which took place in the 1970s when comptuer still had punch cards. Its amazing to me how much we've minitaturized things since then, how much we have advanced. The premise of the book was that the world would be taken over by intelligent computers. Has that happened yet? I'm not sure, but I think we're coming close to that. The book at least helped me think.
Today is a hot day, a steamy day, a fog up your glasses when you walk outside from a coo room day. It'll be nothing like Phoenix where today's high was forecasted to be 114. Why am I coming there, I don't know, but I really hope I can deal. Even in the mountains where I will be going on Saturday were going to tb in the mid 90s which is still warm.
My trip should be an interesting one, leaving at like 4:30 a.m. from here, arriving in phoenix at 8:00 a.m. phoenix time. Then I'll hop on High Country transport and get the hell out of Phoenix as fast as I can for the coolness of the mountains and my grandparents house. They're really excited, the transport people, that I'll be coming with my dog. I'm the first person to be travelling with a dog, so it should be interesting, definitely.
Well, must go, I went and wonloaded the first Lemony Snicket book, why I'm reading childrens books I don't know, but it should be good. It should be right up my alley, at least some times, as its very focussed on being negative. In this series nothing good happens, and thats why it makes the book funny. We'll see, at least these books are short, and will give me some light reading for the trip west. More later.
